It’s no Oscar, but we sure are happy to win!


  For over twenty-seven years Mission Arlington has brought hope to the people in Arlington, Texas. One of the main forces behind the success of the mission is Tillie Burgin, Executive Director who works tirelessly helping to organize and oversee the various services Mission Arlington offers: health, dental, spiritual support, and crisis intervention.

Because of the fine work Mission Arlington does within the community, they were recently selected to receive an “IT Makeover”, a not-for-profit technological makeover sponsored by Intel, HP, Microsoft, HTG Peer Groups, and Networking Solutions. The ‘IT Makeover’ team contacted Darrel Phipps, System Administrator for Mission Arlington, and asked, “If you had everything you needed as far as equipment and software to help continue the efforts of the mission, what might that entail?” Mr. Phipps was more than surprised when he found out that Mission Arlington had been selected for the complete IT Makeover.

Varvid, Inc. was asked to produce a video that would not only introduce Mission Arlington and the various services they provide, but setup the technological challenges they faced, and show specifically how the new donated computer equipment, servers, backup system, and various software programs would help ensure that the mission would continue its positive impact.

Michael Pearce, Creative Director at Varvid, Inc. directed and shot most of the scenes for the project. “It was an honor to meet someone like Tillie who gives her heart and soul to this worthy cause. This is one of those feel-good projects where people are recognized for their hard work in ways they had never dreamed possible. Intel, HP, Microsoft, HTG Peer Groups, and Networking Solutions all came together and provided everything Mission Arlington to continue their services to the community. Varvid works on a variety of projects that takes our crews to different parts of the world, highlighting various industries. When we have the opportunity to produce a film that shares the positive side of humanity – yeah we like that!”

Varvid was recently informed that the video had won an Honorable Mention – 2012 Strategic Video Award.
